Episode 56: Bessie Blount from James Boulton

This week I have a guest episode from James Boulton of the Queens of England Podcast ( on Bessie Blount, Henry VIII’s most famous mistress. James’s podcast is my new favorite, and I suggest that you all go over and subscribe to him asap. But listen to this episode first.

This is a good article on Bessie Blount as well:
A Portrait of Bessie Blount (c.1500-1539?)

Also, you can check out the minicast I did on Henry Fitzroy, Bessie’s son.
